Happy New Year everyone! I’m sorry that I didn’t write anything the last weeks, but my hubby and I were busy moving. We bought a house at the end of the year and after a long, stressful journey with the bank we finally moved on December 23rd. You can imagine that our Christmas was filled with unpacking and getting everything setup.
But I’m back and my New Years resolution is to be more crafty 🙂
I have no idea how to proof at the end that I was, but just lets get started with my first card for 2016.
Who else is done with the Winter? I know, living in California and now whining about the “winter” is kind of complaining where there is nothing to complain. But even here it gets really cold at night (no snow though). Anyway, I could need some bright colors and some warm sunshine now. So, can winter be over already? Yes! That’s exactly why today’s card is bright and shiny 🙂
I used an older stamp set from Paper Smooches called Spectrum and the WPlus9 die set Sunshine Layers (perfectly fitting for my needed sunshine 😉 ). I die cut paper that I had left from a Simon Says Stamp card kit (unfortunately I can’t remember which one it was) and layered the first two pieces. Now I wrapped some blue ribbon around it with a neat little bow. Now I used foam tape to pop up the front panel.
The unicorn was colored using a simple Copic blending technique and some gold gel pen for the horn. After cutting it I tucked it behind the bow and adhered it in place. The sunshine sentiment was cut including some “Stacey tape” already adhered to the paper. At last I added some “Summertime Pillow Puff” stickers and Wink of Stella and voila, there is my sunshine 🙂
If you look at the card long enough, you can feel the heat from the sun 😉
